First Step – Get An Inspection & Quote
A termite inspection is a crucial first step to getting rid of termites, and termite exterminators are required to give an estimate before starting termite extermination. Here at Dominion Pest Control, we have exterminated more than 344 billion termites, so we know exactly what to look for and how to prepare an accurate estimate and extermination plan.
Once you get an official inspection from a professional exterminator, they will be able to provide a quote for termite removal. The final price may vary drastically depending on a number of factors, which is why an inspection and quote is always the best step to take first.
What Factors Impact The Total Cost?
There are a number of factors that can impact termite removal prices. The biggest factor is how large the infestation is. For example, if you catch the infestation early enough and it has only impacted one or two walls, the total cost to exterminate them will be much less than if the termites have spread to multiple levels of the home.
Another factor is the type of termite, as different types of termites can require different treatment methods.
Yet another factor is your location. It may cost more to hire an exterminator if you’re in a very large city or metropolitan area as opposed to living in the suburbs or countryside.
Can I Get Rid Of Termites By Myself?
If you’re concerned about how much it costs to get rid of termites, you may be wondering if you could save some money and try to exterminate the termites by yourself.
In short, yes you could technically get rid of termites yourself, but it’s not easy. And more importantly, it’s common for inexperienced homeowners to not completely eradicate the pests, only to see them return with a vengeance.
To get rid of termites yourself, you’ll need to purchase termite extermination supplies and do your research on how to best exterminate termites. In the end, termite extermination is an invasive process that should only be done by professionals if possible.
Can You Ever Completely Get Rid Of Termites?
If you’ve tried getting rid of termites on your own only to watch them return soon afterward, you may be wondering if it’s possible to ever completely eradicate them.
But thankfully the answer is yes, termites can absolutely be completely exterminated. If termites are causing damage to your home or you think you might have a termite infestation (here are some signs to look for), it’s important to take action soon before the damage to your home continues to grow.
